Book Excerpt A Bridge Through Time Tour


 

Book Excerpt

The man watched her with a bewildered expression on his handsome face.  She had to be dreaming.  Ashley closed her eyes for a second and looked again.  He was still there.  She quickly glanced around and spoke to no one in particular.  "I can't be awake.  It's not possible."
"Ye are awake, lass.  Dinnae fash; I willnae harm ye."  It seemed the object of her imagination sensed her anxiety and wanted to put her at ease.
"Oh my, this is really weird."
"Weird?"  He looked confused by the word – as though he’d never heard it used before.
"Never mind.  I'm sorry; I seem to have forgotten my manners.  Thank you again, for saving me.  I don't know what would have happened if you didn't show up when you did."  She shuddered at the thought.
"I heard yer screams and when I saw that man trying to run off with ye, I couldnae let him harm ye."
"And I thought chivalry was dead."
He cocked an eyebrow and tipped his head quizzically.
Ashley realized she was staring at him again, as if he were an apparition, and shook her head impatiently.  "It's nothing really.  My name is Ashley, by the way."
She held out her hand, but instead of shaking it, he merely held it gently in his much larger one.  He looked as confused as Ashley felt.
"I'm pleased to meet ye, Ashley Bytheway.  I am Cailin MacBayne of the Clan MacKenzie, at yer service."  He lifted her hand to his lips and softly kissed it.
Ashley thought she might faint for a second time, but took a deep breath and tried to get her rebellious body under control.
"My last name is ‘Moore’, not ‘by the way’.  Ashley Moore," she laughed.  "I love your accent."

Author Bio

Jennae was born and raised a New England girl, just outside of Boston, Massachusetts, where her imagination was always bigger than she was. Her large, extended Irish and Italian families were a great source of support, inspiration and humor.  Laughter, love and food were never hard to find in her home. Jennae grew up surrounded by nostalgic, historical landmarks, which fed her love of history and creative writing.
She has worn many hats over the years.  From owning her own typing service and horse training/boarding facility, to operating an embroidery/t-shirt business, her entrepreneurial spirit was strong and thriving. Determined to do something she truly loved, her vivid imagination took over again and she decided to follow her literary dream of writing stories that tapped into her love of magnificent people and places.
 Jennae now lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband, where they’ve raised two beautiful and talented children.  Along the way they’ve gathered a menagerie of pets, including one dog, three cats and 4 chickens to make the family complete.
